for the president. thank you, danielle. >>> a fiery exchange between dianne feinstein and texas's senator, ted cruz. during a senate judiciary committee on banning assault-style weapons, cruz who opposes any weapons ban, questioned the constitutionality of the bill. a sharp clash resulted between feinstein and the tea party freshman. >> namely, would she consider it constitutional for congress to specify that the first amendment shall apply only to the following books and shall not apply to the books that congress has deemed outside the protection of the bill of rights. >> let me just make a couple of points in response. one, i'm not a sixth grader. senator, i've been on this committee for 20 years. i was a mayor for nine years. it's fine you want to lecture me on the constitution, i appreciate it, just know i've been here for a long time, i've passed on a number of bills, i've studied the constitution myself. i am reasonably well educated, and i thank you for the lecture. >> well, that bill cleared the committee on a party-line 10-8 vote and now heads to the full senate where it is likely to be de
if that was proposed by california senator dianne feinstein. if she was clearly angry when a member of the tea party and senate colleague tried to " educate " kerr about the constitution. >> i am not a sixth grader. senator i have been on this committee for 20 years. i was a mayor for nine years and i walked in and saw people shot. i have looked at dead bodies that have been shot with these weapons. i have seen the bullets and the sandy hooke elementary students that were killed. >> the measure now goes to the full senate for consideration. it is going to be a tough fight, because of opposition by the in are a and an expected filibuster by republicans. feinstein is hoping that president obama can help fight the ban like president clinton did for her bill back in the '90s. the president has been pushing for tighter gun since the great school shooting at connecticut. >> the families of some of the children killed in the sandy hooke elementary school shooting at connecticut were in san francisco. they joined bay area leaders to mark the three month anniversary of the massacre and announced an initiativ
for the floor angered dianne feinstein, who is not giving up. >> this is very important to me. i'm not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. >>> joining me now for more on that, and all the other political news, for our daily fix, chris cillizza, and susan page. hi to both of you. while i'm away, you let the assault weapons ban die, practically, at least harry reid says he's not going to let it go forward. susan, his calculus is that it didn't have the votes and he wanted to have something passed. that's good tactics in terms of the senate, but isn't it surrendering to the nra? >> well, it's a cold calculation. what can get through the senate, the straw purchasing provision my biblt get through the senate. it's possible that university background checks, to gun shows and other venues might get through, but there was no way an assault weapons ban was going to get through this senate. not only because reps were opposed. we had half a dozen democratic senators expressing opposition or raisin
's talking about dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban, which she wanted to be part of the main bill so it had a chance of passing. harry reid says it doesn't. now, dianne feinstein promises that the fight is not over and she claims that senator reid did tell her that this would be offered as an amendment on the senate floor, but-- >> it came out on 10-8 vote of the judiciary committee not to give me a vote would be a major betrayal of trust. >> megyn: joining me now to discuss that, monica crowley, she's a radio talk show host and kirsten powers, the daily beast,both are fox news contributors. and it's spin and hope that has no foundation in reality? i mean, do we all agree that her assault weapons ban for all intents and purposes is dead? offering it as a amendment, as an amendment does nothing. it will not pass. it had very little chance of passing as part of the main bill and now it's offered this way, zero chance. >> well, look, when the president did this as a state of the union, it was meant to shame the republicans. what was left unsaid was that ocrats weren't going to support i
not. so when he suggests to dianne feinstein. >> or lectures. >> or lectures she is violating the second amendment that this impinges on second amendment right that is false. this isn't opinion. this is fact. read the damn case law. he keeps doing it and it's driving me crazy because he is supposedly a learned man. >> i think has leads to the next point. we are talking about politics. senator cruz has not just on these issues but on a variety of issues has decided he is going to stake out some turf that is right in the sweet spot of the most conservative, most populist, most red meat tea party elements of his party and decided to do it on a variety of things. he has done it on chuck hagel and done it throughout and with a tone of disrespect that is upsetting a lot of republicans and upsetting a lot of democrats every time he rares his head since he has been in the senate. he hasn't been there very long. he takes this tone and adopted this position to advance some kind of a gender that is trying to get him in a particular place with the republican party. >> i don't mind people
that will succeed. >> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was clearly irritated. the california democrat told reporters, obviously, i'm disappointed. i tried my best but my best i guess was not good enough. you'd think congress would listen but they clearly listened to the national rifle association and they do. the ban would have outlawed it nearly 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to ten rounds. and in today's "daily news" a removal of the assault rifle ban saying, quote. any fool knows that ryan lanza couldn't have possibly have killed as many children as quickly as he did on this morning december 14th without an assault weapon in his hand. so how does the president and any big if not now for a ban on these weapons, when? if sandy hook elementary doesn't make every member of congress take a stand against assault weapons in this country, then what does? this moment, the moment of newtown, of sandy hook, elementary, should not be lost because if it is, maybe it is lost forever. it was officially lost in washington on tuesday, lost to fear and lost to ignorance
bill next month won't include senator dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban. handing a political victory in round one to the nra. according to reid it was a numbers game. >> right now her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i'm not going to try to put somebody on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> i saw that coming. feinstein who has championed the cause for decades of fighting assault weapons plans to keep fighting for her ban. >> very powerful. i've known that all my wife. it doesn't take a weapon away from anyone. i mean, my goodness, the nra says there are 2 million of these or 3 million of them, whatever it is, in the country already. how many assault weapons do you need in the united states of america? >> well, the new york covered that this morning. look at that, wow. the headline "shame on u.s., assault weapons bill is dead." that is tough. surrounded by the photos of the children there killed in newtown, connecticut. not a bad memory to keep in mind. first, just three months after newtown an
to the senator feinstein's proposal, please limitations on high capacity ammunition magazines, and i think everybody has given as many statements as they want to give. i will yield to the senator and then we will go right to the -- the senior senator of california and the senator from texas. >> i will not speak any more on the legislation before us unless senator feinstein forgot what i said. >> none of us have. >> thank you. as long as i have the floor, i will say what we normally say about what is on the agenda. we have two nominees on the agenda. we have a request on our side to hold them over. i will not have to repeat that when you take that business up. in regard to the rest of the markup, just one sentence. maybe i will say a procedural thing. i know we have amendments on our side and even though i do not have anything to say on the bill further, i hope we respect everybody's right to offer amendments, whoever on our side wants to do that. the only thing i want to say is i am still amazed, after we have had two hearings, we have still not seen an announcement -- an analysis. that is
that will succeed. >>> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was irritated. she said, obviously i'm disappointed. i tried my best, but my best, i guess, was not good enough. you'd think the congress would listen, but they clearly listen to the national rifle association. the ban would have outlawed 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to 10 rounds. leaders are now debating which proposals will be included under consideration, a measure that would make it a felony to purchase a gun for someone else, a grant program for school security, and expansion of background checks to private gun sales. that push for background checks which shows most americans support may not be included after negotiations with schumer and colbert installed earlier in the year. a bill is expected next month. >>> the two-year-old conflict in syria is entering a critical stage. they are accusing each other of using chemical weapons. the syrian state news agency reports at least 25 people were killed yesterday. american officials said they are looking into allegations while white house pre

of the senate judiciary committee, dianne feinstein, whose plan would ban a certain number of assault weapons and magazine clips and senator ted cruz, he spoke to her about the constitution. here's part of the exchange yesterday from the senate judiciary committee. [video clip] >> which reconsider its constitutional for congress to specify that the first amendment shall apply only to the following books and shall not apply to the books that congress has been outside the protection of the bill of rights, likewise with she-pac before amendment protection against search and seizure could properly applied only to the following specified individuals and not to the individuals that congress has been outside the protection of the bill of rights? >> you have a question, senator? >> let me make a couple of points in response. i am not a sixth grader. senator, i have been on this committee and 20 years. i was a mayor for nine years. i walked in and some people shot. i've looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. i have seen the bullets that imposed. in sandy hook, youngsters were dismemb
's against any gun control. and committee chair, dianne feinstein, who's very good on it. let's watch. >> the question i would pose to the senior start from california is would she deem it went with t the bill of rights for congress to engage in the same endeavor we're contemplating doing in the second amendment in context of the first or fourth amendment? namely, would she consider it constitutional for congress to specify the first amendment shall apply only to the following books? and shall not apply to the books congress has deemed outside the protection of the bill of rights. >> i'm not a sixth grader. senator, i've been on this committee for 20 years. i was a mayor for nine years. i walked in. i saw people shot. i've looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. i've seen the bullets that implode. in sandy hook, youngsters were dismembered. it's fine you want to lecture me on the constitution. i appreciate it. just know i've been here for a long time. i've passed on a number of bills. i've studied the constitution, myself. i'm reasonably well educated. and i thank you
to require a criminal background check for criminals. >> well, senator feinstein and obviously the assault weapons ban was really what she was pushing hardest. but she says it's the nra, it shows how much clout they have in washington. in spite of the fact that since newtown there had been some talk about whether their power had been diluted. what do you think is going on here? >> well, since newtown, over 3,000 more americans have died from guns. 87 americans that woke up today will be dead from firearms. assault weapons in these high-capacity ammunition clips are the weapons of choice and the common denominator in all of the mass shootings. when i go for a duck hunting license, i'm limited to three rounds to protect the duck population. but congress says it's perfectly fine for the criminals and mentally ill to have 30 and 100-round clips to fight police officers who are limited to 13 to 15 rounds. what's going on here isn't so much the nra, it's cowardice in congress. it's allowing the uniquely unregulated gun industry to buy congress and intimidate the democrats and own the republicans
